Ferrari 458 Spider (2011) At A Glance

+Great looking drop top version of the 458 Italia. Folding hard top roof. Lovely V8 engine sound.

-Well over £200,000.

Ferrari showed a Spider version of its fantastic looking 458 Italia at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show. The 458 Spider features a folding hard top – the first mid-rear engine car of its type with such a design.

Power still comes from the award winning 4.5-litre V8 engine, and the gearbox, a dual-clutch paddle shift system, remains the same.Top speed is around 200mph, and 0-62mph takes just 3.4 seconds. The exhaust note has been tuned so the occupants can enjoy it more when the roof is down.

Combined cycle fuel consumption, if it really matters in such a car, is 24mpg, with CO2 emissions of 275g/km.

The folding hard top is made from aluminium to keep weight down, and weighs in at 25kg less than a folding fabric roof would have. It folds into the area between the cabin and the engine bay, leaving space for a luggage bench behind the seats.

There is an electronic wind stop which reduces the buffeting associated with cabriolets, and it allows conversation to be held at normal levels even at speeds as high as 125mph.
